Per Wikipedia: "This species is native to southern Canada and of much of the conterminous eastern U.S., east of the Rocky Mountains, excluding the drier parts of the prairies. It grows in sandy soils and other kinds of soils in sunny areas." In my area (NY zone 5), it also grows in moist soil/clay/rocky/part shade. As you probably know, this plant is host to the Monarch Butterfly and provides habitat for a community of other insects/hummingbirds. If interested, let me know in comment below. Thanks

    Here's a picture of the flowers, they have a fragrance similar to jasmine. Plants grow about 2' tall

    Are the seeds for trade? SASE?

    Hi Annie(7) - SASE is fine. I have sent you a Houzz message. Thanks. (If you don't have any seeds to trade, that's OK, I'll mail you the milkweed seeds anyway). If you do have any to trade, I'd be interested to know. Thanks again.

    I actually have swamp milkweed and aquatic milkweed seeds that other members kindly sent me since I am a newbie. I can regift you a portion of those seeds and you can also check out my trade list.
